On Hiatus





Hey everyone, I've decided that it's time to officially announce, that this blog is on hiatus. Life is wonderful, yet forever changing, and for this reason it's time for me to also make some changes. 

Blogging has been so personally rewarding, and I appreciate all the support. However I can no longer find the time required to put articles together in a timely manner. As such going forward updates will be few and far apart, if any.

I want to give a big shout out to all those that have supported me, and who knows what the future may hold...


Cut The Cord: New Years Edition




It's been a while since I discussed cord-cutting, so for all those interested here's an update.

I still swear by Trakt as my go to for keeping track of all the TV shows that are watched throughout the house. If you have never used Trakt check out my previous post here.

Recently I started using RealDebrisan unrestricted downloading service which will alleviate buffering for most serve on-demand content such as movies and tv shows. While it's not a perfect solution, it really does help with finding solid online content as well as minimizing buffering. However, something to consider with RealDebris is that it's not a free service! While it is quite reasonably priced, I bought a 6 month subscription for about $24CDN, working out to be just under $4CDN a month, it's still an added cost. I may check out other services in the future, and if anyone has a suggestion to other similar services, leave a comment.

Recently I've been using both Typhoon TV, and TVZion as my main TV and Movie watching android app. I switched because both Typhoon TV and TVZion integrates well with both Trakt and RealDebris, so I can get solid streams, and keep track of the shows I watch.

Now, I do want to say they are both awesome, and each in its own unique way, however they both lack a feature I've grown to love with my other android apps, That feature is the ability to have an embedded Trakt progress option, which lists the episodes you're behind on, in chronological order. Fingers crossed it's something that will be implemented.
